    Well as long as you said SIG instead of Glock. At least SIG makes a 1911 (isn't the best 1911, but still a 1911).

    great post.

    i dont trust people (ok.....to be honest i dont even "like" people in general) and when im forced to be around large groups of people i watch them intently. if there is a miscreant around i want to recognize him as such before any potential trouble starts so that i can remove myself from the area or as a last result, prepare to defend myself and others around me. on one such night i found myself within close proximity of a belligerant, drunken indian. this guy had to be 6'8" tall and every bit of 300+ pounds. although sheathed, he had a large dagger. as i cautiously put distance between him and my family i took comfort in having big, fast, 230 grain +P loads. i never once thought "i hope im able to hit him", i thought "im glad i brought a .45" because i really dont think a small-bore mini (ppk for example) would do to much against a drunk and enraged man that size. my personal minimum caliber is +P 9mm, and even that would have probably taken multiple hits on a man that large.

    sure, accuracy is definately a huge part of the equation but i consider the ability to hit your target as a given because a miss from a .45 is equally as ineffective as a miss from a .32. ive seen buffalo hit square in the base of the skull with a 7mm magnum that never even stopped eating. you have to desposit enough energy to upset your target and the amount of energy required increases dramatically with the size of your target. yes, caliber is just as important as accuracy. find as big a caliber as you can comfortably/accurately shoot and thats what you should carry.

    When faced with the options(SIG or Glock), only 1 makes a 1911 platform.

    sig only makes a 1902....its nearly a decade of failures below a 1911.

    the p226 is sweet and i might have one myself soon......but their 1902 was a real disappointment. its a clear example of the difference in a manufacturer who builds a 1911, and a johnnie-come-lately manufacturer trying to jump on the popular bandwagon to sell some guns.

    Not to worry Bruce, Bud, it won't be anytime soon. I just today picked up a Series 70 re-issue, at less than the price of a 1991A1.

    Oh yeah, and I would never give up my 1911s. I could live with a Sig, I would never completely leave the light though.

    Hopefully tomorrow Bruce, I have lousy lighting in the house and take the pics outside. I also have a couple things to change before I'll be satisfied with it.
